    Donald Trump's campaign is considering booking one of Cleveland's big sports venues for his acceptance speech in July, two GOP sources familiar with the planning of the upcoming GOP convention say. The sources said First Energy Stadium, home of the Cleveland Browns, and Progressive Field, home of the city's Indians baseball team, are the two sites under consideration for Trump's acceptance speech on the final night of the convention. One of the sources said the campaign is closing in on signing a contract for use of one of the two venues, with the football stadium currently the favorite for Trump's...

    The entire rust belt just may be in for a scorcher come June, and maybe thru October. By now most of us have seen the forecast. The worst thing about heat waves in the rust belt is either lack of rain or breezes. Are we going to have a repeat of the deadly 1995 Chicago summer? And what about the DNC/GOP Conventions? It's probably going to be around 95 to 100 degrees those weekends. Are the Democrats still going to protest and "Break Stuff" while baking in that heat? And will the Leftist Loonies start up again blaming the excessive...

    Donald Trump may be the last Republican standing in the 2016 race, but that doesn't mean everyone in his party is happy about it. At the Washington state Republican convention this weekend, 40 of the state's 41 elected GOP delegates went not to Trump but to Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Trump's primary challenger in the race. The Seattle Times reports that even Trump's state campaign chairman in Washington, state Sen. Don Benton, didn't snag a delegate slot in the anti-Trump crowd. Cruz's state campaign manager, Saul Gamoran, said many Washington state Republicans are "taking a wait-and-see attitude" to Trump's candidacy....

    PASCO — Donald Trump has all but sewn up the GOP presidential nomination. But as thousands of Washington Republicans converged on a rodeo arena for their state convention over the weekend, the gathering didn’t look like a political party yet united behind a Trump-led ticket. Red Ted Cruz T-shirts outnumbered Trump ball caps on the convention floor at the TRAC Center, and supporters of the Texas senator won 40 of the 41 elected delegate slots for the Republican National Convention in Cleveland this summer — even though Cruz has dropped out of the race. ...snip...

    The media narrative for the last six months has been about how the Republican convention in Cleveland was going to be a fight, a mess, a second “mistake by the lake.” Journalists reveled in the prospect of a GOP floor fight and protests in the streets. What was missed, or more likely ignored, was the brawl happening on the left and the mess that could be the Democratic convention in Philadelphia. Yes, Cleveland will have protests. Republicans, conservatives, or even average Americans who simply want to be left alone cannot get together without the prospect of a mob of angry...

Arguably he is not warning but signaling to his supporters what he expects of them. Trump stated in an interview with the New York Times that even if he does not reach the...

    We found the Cleveland Police Patrolmen's Association president is concerned about what he said officers have heard from federal officials about staffing. "The city’s numbers aren’t jiving with what the FEMA instructors are telling them we need for this, and they’re the guys that go and train for this," CPPA President Steve Loomis said. “It’s absolutely the city’s responsibility to make us as safe as possible.” But privately, those close to the security organizing are not worried. In fact, they’re confident security plans are coming together and staffing shouldn’t be an issue. Nicholas Vroutos runs Nick’s Sports Corner steps away...

    The city of Cleveland is seeking an unprecedented amount of riot gear and security equipment for July's Republican National Convention as emotional unrest and physical violence follow the GOP front runner across the U.S. Donald Trump, in fact, has predicted riots if he wins the most number of delegates but is not formally nominated during the convention. It’s a prediction that local leaders have called “irresponsible” and “dangerous,” and one which continues to fuel the narrative that repressive, military police tactics are necessary during the RNC. This month, the city posted a request for bids on a spectrum of riot...

    Muslim activist group, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), and the American Civil Liberties Union and others have formed a coalition questioning Cleveland police and their plan to use riot response equipment at the upcoming Republican Nation Convention. The groups will hold a press conference Monday to present their demands regarding the city’s plans to buy riot equipment ahead of the Republican National Convention in July, The Cleveland Plain-Dealer reports. The city received a $50 million grant to pay for additional security, though it is unclear how all that money will be spent. The groups do not totally oppose riot...

    Donald Trump not only beat Marco Rubio last night, he beat the expectations game as well. He crushed Rubio by almost 20 points in the Floridian's home state. He took Illinois by 10 points over Ted Cruz and 20 points over John Kasich, and in Missouri, he edged out Cruz by the narrowest of margins. Trump also extended his dominance of Cruz in the South, beating him in the final race in the region that was to be Cruz's launching pad to the nomination. The New Yorker won 11 of the region's 12 contests, losing only in the Texan's home...

    A man carrying a Donald Trump campaign poster shouted abuse at protesters while he was leaving a rally in Cleveland on Saturday, 12 March. While walking past a group of protesters who were filming at the time the man slowed down and shouted: “Go to Auschwitz, go to f---ing Auschwitz”. Anti-Trump protesters and Trump supporters yelled at one another as supporters left Cleveland’s International Exposition Center after the Republican frontrunner’s rally had finished. At a rally earlier Saturday outside Dayton, Trump was briefly surrounded by Secret Service agents when a man tried to breach the security buffer. He was stopped...
